A type of brake design where the discs or drums and associated brake
components are not located within the wheels.
The system that delivers the air-fuel mixture to the cylinders.
Includes the carburetor or fuel injection system, intake manifold,
intake ports, and intake valves.
The first stroke of the four-stroke cycle during which the piston
moves downward from top dead center to bottom dead center creating a
partial vacuum and sucking the fuel-air mixture into the cylinder.
A camshaft-driven valve in the cylinder head that opens to allow the
fuel-air charge into the cylinder and closes to form part of the
combustion chamber during the compression and power strokes.
Internal Combustion Engine

It receives a small amount of electrical voltage from the battery and
steps up the low "primary" voltage and amplifies it into a big jolt of
voltage of about 20,000 volts, and sends it to the spark plugs via the
An engine in which all the cylinders are arranged in a straight row.
The connecting tubes between the base of the carburetor and the port
openings to the intake valve or intake ports. The air-fuel mixture
travels from the throttle body into a chamber called the plenum, which
feeds individual tubes (called runners) which lead to the individual
intake port. Its purpose is to transfer the air-fuel mixture to each
cylinder. Also called "inlet pipe."
